Film description

A creational documentary based on the personal diaries of Thura, an immigrant engineer from Mjanma, searching for a job fit for his qualifications in Korea.
As a marginalized, alienated observer, Thura describes the dark reality ruled by capital, xenophobia, and social inequality. The poetic tone of his diary is mixed with a realistic description of the hypercapitalist world.

The vast, slightly oneiric aesthetic of the experience recorded volumetrically as
a point cloud, allows the narration to slowly jump between the poor, yet very calm childhood, and the current, fear-ridden reality. "Rain Fruits" is a perfect addition to this year's "Parasites" section.
